Early in my career, but had previous background in HR Generalist and Business Partner work before switching to consulting. Looking to find projects that go back to my HR roots? Any suggestions?

Sure! I’m at Korn Ferry, which has acquired many of the major players in the space in recent years (PDI, Hay Group, Global Novations, etc). Others are Center for Creative Leadership, Willis Towers Watson, Aon Hewitt, Employera, and I hear that many executive search firms have started up practices as well - Spencer Stuart, Russell Reynolds, etc - although I am not as familiar with them.

Honestly, I had to leave the firm (Deloitte) to do that work. I tried to transfer from OT to HRT, but unless I had so many years of leading process design they didn’t want me at a mid level. I couldn’t get away from finance system implementations, so I left to work in HR in industry, and eventually made my way back to consulting at a firm that specializes in HR and talent - and couldn’t be happier! At Deloitte, use your network and highlight your HR experience, find PPMDs and SMs who do that work and ask how you can help, support internal initiatives to build your brand in the space, but don’t forget that there are plenty of firms that would love to have you and your experience for HR-specific projects.

I'm in OT. The previous projects have been comms/training focus. My current project is a non-hr tech implementation doing change management (so comms/training focus again). Wondering if I should look into Workforce transformation projects? Overall just want to gain more experience around talent and organizational strategies (business partner-related work).

Is it worth giving this feedback and ask for things to change, or should I just leave lol?

Any chance they’d pay back spending prior to start date that was within a certain window (my last company allowed this for moving-related expenses, as an example) of the start? McKinsey & Company

Is it a bad idea to refinance with a line of credit vs a regular student loan refinancing?
